On September 11, 2001, we would never have believed 10 years later…

On September 11, 2001, we would never have believed 10 years later…

… the U.S. government would refuse to call the enemy by name.

… the president would be a far-left socialist, pro-Islamic Black man named Barack Hussein Obama.

… the people of the Western world would be divided about making the bad guys pay.

… some high-ranking politicians would question the ‘official story’ of the 9/11 attacks.

… Christianity would be banned in our public schools while special allowances were made for Islamic students.

… the president of the United States would ‘apologize’ to the enemy for being the target of their terror attack.

… the ripples of the attack would cause such widespread disillusionment and polarization with both American political behemoths that a grassroots, back-to-the Constitution movement would be launched in the Tea Party.

… the American people would allow the president to contradict and/or ignore the Constitution at will.

… Canada would replace the U.S. as Israel’s most vocal ally and supporter on the international scene.

… the Canadian Prime Minister would be a Conservative while the U.S. president would be a socialist Democrat,

… the Canadian Prime Minister would have bigger balls than the American President.

… our courts and all levels of government would consider implementing Sharia law.

… it would have become a sin of enormous magnitude to lay blame at the feet of those actually responsible for the terrorist attacks, yet socially acceptable – expected, even – to condemn Christians and Jews to a point beyond religious persecution.

... the ‘official’ 9/11 ceremony would exclude First Responders, creating the need for a separate gathering of remembrance thanks to authentic American patriots like Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer.

If someone in 2001 predicted these things here on FreeRepublic, the term “tin foil hat” would have been used until that person shut up.

... that a candidate running for president would attend a church for 20 years where the reverend would bellow out “God Damn America!” — and this candidate would be elected President of the United States.

This one should be amended to read....

...the U.S. government would refuse to call the radical Islamic enemy by name but demcorat party leaders would smear average America citizens in the peaceful TEA Party by calling them terrorists simply because they want our leaders to respect the Consitution.

don’t forget that Obama says 9-11 is not about terrorism or Al Qeada its to be a day of public service.

......that the GOP “frontrunner” would be a guy who speaks to “La Raza,” “the Race,” who goes to Mexico and calls for an open border, who implements the Dream Act for their state, a Gore and a Giuliani supporter, and that there would be FReepers who call anyone here who objects “extremists,” among other things.

Clearly, we’ve fallen a long way as a people and as a nation.

Perhaps the attacks were successful in their attempt to bring down the United States, after all.

... that the death of Osama bin Laden would not bring millions of Americans celebrating in the streets. Instead it was a political game played (badly) by an inept president trying to stop his free-fall in the polls.

AND....

that American tax dollars would be used to help construct that Victory Mosque.

(I was watching Jon Hunstman last night on Fox. He said the muzzies are getting approval for stimulous funds to help secure construction.)

“…..that a Victory Mosque was to be built at Ground Zero with the mayor and the President’s blessing and with those that oppose it being called un-American”, while a church that was heavily damaged from the attack is still waiting 10 years later for permission to rebuild.

...that the U.S. Government would intentionally arm Mexican smugglers and drug dealers while seeking to repress the Second Amendment rights of American citizens.

...that a U.S. President would use his authority to stifle domestic energy production in nuclear, coal, natural gas, and petroleum.

...that illegal immigrants would receive de facto amnesty from the federal government and even qualify for taxpayer subsidies such as food stamps, in-state tuition, and tax credits.

...that the nanny-state mayor of NYC who succeeded Mayor Rudy Giuliani would ban first responders, clergy, and prayer itself from the tenth year memorial of 9-11 at Ground Zero.

...that the First Lady would squander over $10 million in tax dollars on vacations in a single year, while more than 44 million recession-strapped Americans were using food stamps.

Had you told me this about 10am 9/11 2001, my thought would be that for these things to be true, the terrorist attacks would continue, to include a successful hit on the capitol!

Most of the American public forgot about 9/11 five years ago. Unfortunately a large portion of our population surrendered long ago. Don't we remember the never ending attacks on W.

BS. On 9/12 Bush was already calling them a “Religion of Peace”.

Just 2 or 3....

Since the ‘age of Obama’.

Why should we be surprised. We had an anti-Nationalist president and a Transnational Progressive governing class. Our domestic savior, Fox News is transnational corporatist. And the treasonous elites in Europe were cramming the Eurabia project down the throats of their subjects.
And this isn't retrospect for me. A few days after 9/11, I noted the lack of resolve among our political class. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/527742/posts

The Obama White House is behind a cynical, coldly calculated political effort to erase the meaning of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert Sept. 11 into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry.

Instead of inspiring a nation with a hardened commitment to defend America and America’s values at all costs, and pay the greatest tribute to all of those who defend America and freedom, and a warning to the enemies of freedom that America’s resolve is as firm as tempered steel, Obama chose rather to speak about 9/11 as a day of national service.

Obama has toured the world, apologizing for America and bowing down to Muslim kings and dictators.

Obama has put out an order to stop using the “War On Terror” Label and to use “Overseas Contingency Operation” instead. He has honored and protected and apologized for Muslims while putting down Christianity at every opportunity.

Obama stated in his book, "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

As the tenth anniversary of 9/11 approaches, neither the victim’s families, the 9/11 first responders nor the clergy are invited to the national ceremony in New York City. It is an orchestrated event to redefine what truly happened.The whole “day of service” agenda is an attempt to get us to forget what happened so we lose our resolve to uphold freedom.

This effort to reshape the American psyche has nothing to do with healing the nation and everything to do with easing the nation along in the ongoing radical transformation of America that Obama promised during his election campaign.

Don't let Obama and the nihilistic liberals drain 9/11 of all meaning.

Our voices need to be heard not only at Town Hall sessions or Tea Party demonstrations but in the very halls of Congress. We have to speak out to stop the desecration of September 11th..



NEVER FORGET

"Every 'moderate' Muslim is a potential terrorist. The belief in Islam is like a tank of gasoline. It looks innocuous, until it meets the fire. For a 'moderate' Muslim to become a murderous jihadist, all it takes is a spark of faith.

It is time to put an end to the charade of “moderate Islam.” There is no such thing as moderate Muslim. Muslims are either jihadists or dormant jihadists – moderate, they are not."

______________

Watch 'Remembering 9/11' on the Geographic Channel. Repeating Thursday 3PM CST: 'Inside 9/11: Zero Hour'- EXCELLENT.

_______________

Watch this moving video. It is the most viewed of any of the 9/11 videos and is now in the Smithsonian.

Be sure to read (at the site) Anatomy Of The Attack and the moving essay,’That Day’ by Steve Golding, a New Yorker who lived through it.
